I listen to farmers expressing concern about the service they are getting from their accountant. I tell them to join ifac as I am very happy with the service I am getting.

Pat Murphy Dairy Farmer

You need an accountant who knows farmers and the business of farming. Ifac is a co-op and they know farming and farm tax, they are experts and I recommend them.

Teddy Cashman Dairy Farmer

Young farmers need expert specialist advice, they need to be with an accountant who knows farming and farm income and transfer taxes. Ifac fits the bill for me and I strongly recommend them to other young farmers.

Colm & Judy Diggins Dairy Farmer

I was of the opinion that I had a good accountant prior to moving to ifac. Ifac’s service goes beyond the traditional tax accountant. Their service matches my plans for the future of my farm with top class tax planning.
